I’m in full Curio swing and decided to do some testing! One of the most exciting things about the Curio is it’s ability to emboss. Reading online, it seems people have been getting mixed results with the embossing mat and tools included. Silhouette makes their own paper, which I assume is a cotton based paper, to do embossing but it’s not available yet. 🙁 I dug through my stash looking for something that had decent embossing quality and stumbled upon some old Making Memories/SLICE colored vellum. It shows crease marks easily so I thought it was a good place to start!
I got mixed results with the papers I tried. Most of the card stock I own is thick so it doesn’t emboss well. The best advice I can give is to use papers that mark easily with modest pressure and your finger nail. I’m curious to see how the Silhouette specific embossing papers perform later this year.
